Vegan Brandy Alexander

This rich and creamy Vegan Brandy Alexander is sure to delight. It’s made with a combination of cognac, crème de cacao, and dairy-free cream. But then, it’s topped with grated fresh nutmeg to provide a delicious nutty flavor.  This drink means business!

That’s right.  All you need for this velveting smooth brandy-based drink is 4 ingredients. It’s robust and aromatic and it’s no wonder that is had a heyday in the roaring 20’s. However, it’s a drink that is currently under the radar.  It deserves to come back. If you haven’t tried this cocktail, don’t wait.

Go ahead, become a mixologist at home!  This easy drink takes minutes to make and doesn’t require fancy tools.  All you need is a cocktail shaker and your ingredients. Simple add 1 part of each of the ingredients, ice, and shake.  Some prefer a heavier hand with the cognac than the other two ingredients but experiment for yourself and see where it leads.

Finally, strain your Vegan Brandy Alexander into a martini or coup glass and grate fresh nutmeg on top.  It adds a beautiful touch and brings extra flavor and pizazz.

It’s time to celebrate, grab and your ingredients and shake. One tasty Vegan Brandy Alexander coming your way at HOME! Happy sipping.
